Camber plates by company

Any chance we could consolidate a list of camber plates by company and list some of the specs.

I think it would be helpful to list out all the manufacturers and if you have pictures even better.

Here are the ones that I know of but I don't have specifications on them.

1. JPSS Knockout camber.
2. Moreno Motorsports.
3. Vorshlag Motorsports.
4. Ground Control suspension.
5. Pegasus CNC.

Are there any others?

The only other one I know of is Detroit Speed Engineering but I believe they only come with their coil-overs.

As far as specs go (from the reading I've done):

JPSS has two: the adjustable is just camber/SAI (no caster) and up to 2°; his "SAI plates" are not adjustable and are ~3°;
Moreno: adjustable to 1.45° caster or camber, or ~1° both;
Vorshlag: if memory serves, adjustable to 2.5° camber, not sure about caster;
Ground Control: don't think they say, don't remember;
Pegasus: adjustable to 1.5° camber or caster, or ~1° both
DSE: don't know

Yeah, you are right the DSE plates are only available with their coilover conversion kit.

I have the Ground Control plates. This is from their website: "These plates feature over 36mm of total camber adjustment with the ability to make corrective caster changes, to equalize side-to-side caster in the stock position."

Do you know what 36mm translates to in degrees? I got me some Pegasus plates and it looks like they give ~24mm (1.5°) of adjustment, so I guess 36mm would be about 2.25°?

Another thing we could mention is that (correct me if I'm wrong) all of the plates except JPSS's don't require drilling/modifying the strut towers; JP's knock out plates require drilling; his SAI plates require either drilling/cutting or welding/cutting depending on what style you get.

I think your guess is pretty accurate. Also true is the JPSS drilling and cutting issue.

How do you like the Pegasus plates?

Hey guys, we just finished the camber plates for the Gen 6 Camaro. While we were at it, we figured we would also re-engineer our gen 5. There's several benefits to the new design. I will posting more info on our Facebook page once we get a moment. We have over 30 other suspension components in line for production for the 5th gen market, so subscribe for updates.

Still debating whether to put pockets on the top plates like that CAD drawing.

These are all great plates. Right now we are busy machining but once we get a few minutes, we will post the some of the advantages of our plates vs what''s on the market.

Those looks excellent! You guys are always setting the bar high and it's clearly noticeable. Even if only for aesthetics the pockets are worth it so long as it doesn't increase the price dramatically.
